Biography

Miranda Howe

Miranda Howe was born and raised in New Mexico. She comes from a family of artists and was always nurtured and encouraged in her own artistic endeavors. Her undergraduate work was done in Lubbock, Texas where she received her BFA in Studio Ceramics in 1995 from Texas Tech University. Ceramics was the foundation of her education, but she explored many other areas of the visual arts as well. With a love of travel and a desire to learn more about printmaking, she enrolled in a study abroad program through the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts, based in Italy and Greece. She began her graduate work in Printmaking at Montana State University, but returned to Ceramics as her main emphasis of study, graduating with her MFA in 2001. Miranda's travels, geologic interests, and the graphic nature of printmaking, continue to influence both her functional and sculptural ceramic work.

Miranda has been awarded art residencies at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, Montana, the LH Project in Joseph, Oregon, the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado, the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program in New Mexico, and the Arts/Industry Residency through the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

In addition to her own studio practice, she has also recently purchased a historic warehouse in Roswell and is in midst of renovating and developing Bone Springs Art Space. Bone Springs will be a studio, gallery and educational facility, bringing additional growth to the local arts community.
